Dynamic transcriptomes identify biogenic amines and insect like hormonal regulation for mediating reproduction in Schistosoma japonicum

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5355954
PMID: 28287085
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms14693

[…] cripts ⩽150 bp in length were discarded. These three transcriptomes were merged to remove redundant sequences with blastn. S. japonicum expression databases (V4.0 and EST) were downloaded from Finally, de novo reconstructed unigenes were annotated by blastx to public databases (the Swiss-Prot protein database, Caenorhabditis elegans transcriptome, Clonorchis sinensis transcr […]


Evidence for Integrin – Venus Kinase Receptor 1 Alliance in the Ovary of Schistosoma mansoni Females Controlling Cell Survival

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5289644
PMID: 28114363
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006147
call_split See protocol

[…] The following public domain tools were used: BLASTx (, SchistoDB (; []), and WormBase ParaSite (release 6, April 2016;; []). The online-tool SMART ( [] was used to […]


Biompha LAMP: A New Rapid Loop Mediated Isothermal Amplification Assay for Detecting Schistosoma mansoni in Biomphalaria glabrata Snail Host

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 5179122
PMID: 27941967
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0005225

[…] ther studies. Specificity for S. mansoni was tested in silico through BLAST alignment analysis [], as well as searches and comparisons in available online genomes databases for Schistosoma spp. (e.g. SchistoDB; A 284 bp unique region for S. mansoni was selected and used for LAMP primer design using the Primer Explorer v4 software ( A set […]


A Genome Wide Comparison to Identify Markers to Differentiate the Sex of Larval Stages of Schistosoma haematobium, Schistosoma bovis and their Respective Hybrids

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 5115654
PMID: 27861520
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0005138

[…] atobium, S. bovis or to a chimeric concatenate of both genomes (allowing each read, depending on its origin, to map against the more similar location in one or the other species’ genome). We used the SchistoDB S. haematobium genome [] and the S. bovis draft assembly genome available at the Sanger institute website. The short alignment tool Bowtie2 [] was used; mapping was performed in single-end w […]


GPCR and IR genes in Schistosoma mansoni miracidia

PMCID: 5080760
PMID: 27784323
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-016-1837-2

[…] The S. mansoni protein dataset used in this study was based on the improved genome assembly [], along with expression data provided by the GeneDB ( and SchistoDB ( databases. To these databases, we applied Pfam-based profile searches and identification of TM domains with the goal of identifying receptors belonging to the rhodopsin G […]


Human IgG1 Responses to Surface Localised Schistosoma mansoni Ly6 Family Members Drop following Praziquantel Treatment

PLoS Negl Trop Dis
PMCID: 4492491
PMID: 26147973
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0003920

[…] mes, tBLASTn searches using each of the SmLy6 family members was performed against the latest publically available gene predictions (searches performed 17-08-2013) from those genomes (downloaded from and respectively).Alignment of the SmLy6 family members and HsCD59 protein sequences was performed using MUSCLE software [] with additional manual editing based on canonical r […]
